Heat pumps are a reliable source of cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. Acting as both a furnace and air conditioner, heat pumps can function all year round. Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. Usually, a heat pump’s lifes pan is about 10-15 years, provided you keep it well maintained.

When to Replace Your Heat Pump
Replacing your old heat pump in your Ohio home may be an initial investment; however, it can save you hundreds of dollars in the long-run by increasing energy efficiency and reducing breakdowns. If you are unsure if your heat pump needs to be replaced, check out general guidelines on when to replace your heat pump below.
Your heat pump is more than 10 years old
While age alone is not the main reason you should replace your heat pump, there can be a good argument made for replacing a heat pump that gets to be more than 10 to 15 years old. Newer heat pumps are typically much more efficient than older ones and can save you hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling costs!
Your heat pump needs frequent repairs
Heat pumps are built to be durable, so if yours is breaking down more than two or three times a year, this is usually a sign of a bigger problem that can only be solved by heat pump replacement. This is especially true if your repair costs are increasing significantly every time. Heat pump replacement will eliminate the hassle of frequent repairs and will save you tons of money on repair costs!
Your energy bills are going up
If your heat pump is losing efficiency, this is a sure sign it is on its last legs. Sometimes heat pump repair will fix the problem, but sometimes it won’t be enough. An expert HVAC tech from Rick’s Heating & Cooling will be able to inspect your heat pump and determine if you need repair or replacement.
Some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold
Unequal heating and cooling in the different rooms in your home is a sure sign something is seriously wrong with your heat pump. Call Rick’s Heating & Cooling for heat pump inspection and repair right away!
Your home has humidity problems
Poor humidity control could be the result of poor heat pump operation, inadequate equipment or leaky ductwork, all of which can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too sticky and humid in the summer. Your Rick’s Heating & Cooling technician will diagnose the source of your problem and recommend either heat pump replacement or another technique to make your home comfortable all year round.
